We're Celebrating Children's Dental Health Month

Attachment 1
Helping your child develop good oral hygiene practices pays off with a lifetime of good habits. During Children's Dental Health Month in February, Dr. Mason reminds parents and children of connection between dental health and overall well-being and happiness.

Dr. Mason recommends several key practices that help your child form a solid foundation for a healthy and beautiful smile. First, make sure your son or daughter visits our office for the first time at about a year old. At that first appointment, we assess your child's oral health, including evaluating for decay and nutritional dietary concerns related to sugar consumption and oral home care needs. Most importantly, we use these early visits to encourage a positive lifelong attitude toward dentists and oral health.

In addition, Dr. Mason suggests:
  • As soon as your child is able to rinse and spit, it's time to add a fluoride rinse to their daily oral hygiene routine.
  • Always use a toothpaste with fluoride. Contrary to some misleading media reports, the amount of toothpaste used to brush your tooth is not enough to cause any harm. If you have any questions about this, talk to Dr. Mason.
  • As a rule of thumb, children need help brushing their teeth until they can tie their shoes alone.
  • Avoid drinks with added sugar, such as pop and juice. If you do serve sugary drinks as a treat, never provide them in a sippy cup.
  • Never put your baby or toddler to bed with a bottle.
  • Choose tap water for a sparkling smile.
  • Brush for 2 minutes twice a day. Floss every day.
If you have any questions about how to enhance your family's oral health, please call our office at (989) 686-6110.

New Equipment Makes a Great First Impression

Chelsea Mason Dental has added new state-of-the-art digital impression system designed to make your visit more comfortable and your exam more accurate.

Our new iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner creates dental impressions without uncomfortable, putty-filled dental impression trays. You can breathe and swallow as normal while we scan your mouth. It's fast, accurate and there's no unpleasant taste or smell.

Best of all, though, the resulting 3D scan of tooth surfaces and gum tissue is more detailed and precise than the older method.

Dr. Mason uses the 3D model of your mouth to create crowns, bridges, implants and Invisalign clear aligenrs and retainers. This allows Dr. Mason to create devices with a precision fit. Dr. Mason can even show you how your teeth may look after Invisalign treatment, so you can decide if you want to go forward with treatment.

We use the latest in x-ray technology to secure high-quality images in the safest and most comfortable way possible.

Our machine, the ProVecta S-Pan Panoramic X-Ray from Air Techniques, sets a new standard for sharpness of imaging. The picture quality makes diagnosis significantly easier and more accurate.

The machine's long vertical path accommodates tall patients and wheelchair users. For children, this machine allows us to reduce the radiation dose by 45% to 56% and shorten the scan time, without losing any diagnostic information.

Dr. Mason Sponsors Candy-Free Egg Search

Childrens Museum

We were excited to be part of the 4th Annual Indoor Candy-Free Egg Hunt Day. Dr. Chelsea Mason Dental was a Tooth Sleuth-level sponsor for this great event where children had fun searching for eggs while enjoying music, arts and crafts. The Easter Bunny made a special visit.
At Dr. Mason's practice, we love the youngest members of our community. We also believe the journey to good oral health begins young and continues throughout life. Through events like this egg hunt, we hope kids learn how to have fun without over-indulging in sweet treats.
